    Clarke's Commentary on Exodus 16:8

    In the evening flesh to eat - Viz., the quails; and in the morning bread to the full, viz., the manna.

    And what are we? - Only his servants, obeying his commands.

    Your murmurings are not against us - For we have not brought you up from Egypt; but against the Lord, who, by his own miraculous power and goodness, has brought you out of your slavery.
